DBT is a type of talking therapy originally developed by Marsha Linehan. Fully adherent DBT involves a commitment of at least six months to one year attending weekly individual sessions and group skills training. Between sessions skills coaching is also available throughout and all therapists attend a weekly consult to support adherence to the model. DBT is designed to meet the particular needs of people who experience emotions very intensely.
CBT is a talking therapy. It has been proved to help treat a wide range of emotional and physical health conditions in adults, young people and children. CBT looks at how we think about a situation and how this affects the way we act. In turn our actions can affect how we think and feel. It is most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression, but can be useful for other mental and physical health problems.
I thoroughly enjoyed the 6 week course which has flown by. The weekly sessions and homework have been extremely helpful in starting me on my mindfulness/meditation journey. Really enjoyed the science behind how meditation effects the brain positively. Elizabeth (course leader) has been a pleasure to see every week with her positive, uplifting approach to us as a group and mindfulness as a whole. I shall miss our weekly sessions
I felt I could share my experiences with confidence.
Really great advice, I felt like I was actually being listened to and everyone was calm and friendly – Thank you.
Really good, positive and can see real value for myself and my organisation.
Having a weekly session to look forward to has helped me to cope with difficult situations over the last 12 weeks.
Getting together as a group really helped to share thoughts and discuss challenges as it made me feel human and gave me a support network in work.
Very well presented with enthusiasm and lots of smiles. I enjoyed it and discussed it a lot with my partner so it was very relevant and real for me. It provides a further 'tool' for my therapy practice.
"The course was well-structured and informative; very useful tips and advice and it has definitely helped me to manage myself better." - A previous CBT Group Course attendee.
This course has really helped me get perspective on my life and how I handle difficult situations. I think the fact that our group was small meant that each person was able to open up and feel like their views and feelings were fully considered. It was really well organised and covered loads of useful topics. Thank You.
Having been interested in knowing what mindfulness was about, I have been pleasantly surprised by the whole experience. I have experienced subtle changes in the way I approach my life both consciously and unconsciously. It has made me more confident in being able to manage my daily life with a more realistic approach to my capabilities.
I found the course very good and enjoyed it very much. I feel that it will be useful in my day to day life and will definitely keep up the practice. I will miss the Tuesday sessions. I have recommended the course to all my friends and colleagues.
A great introduction to mindfulness would recommend this course to anyone needing to slow down. Some really useful, practical (and mindful) tips to take away!
